Almost Every Type of Cancer Kills More Men Than Women, Study Shows

Men die at higher rates than women from almost every kind of cancer, a new study finds.

Although it’s been known for years that men die of cancer more often overall, the new study is among the first to study sex differences by individual cancer site, and to analyze whether sex differences in mortality can be explained mostly by differences in cancer incidence (that is, how often men and women develop cancer) or by differences in prognosis (that is, whether men or women are more likely to survive once they’re diagnosed).

The study, which was published Tuesday in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention, used data collected from 1977 to 2006 by cancer registries across the U.S.  The study did not analyze data on sex-specific cancers such as testicular cancer, prostate cancer or breast cancers.

Between 1977 and 2006, the top five biggest disparities in age-adjusted cancer death rates were for the following types of cancer, according to the study:

  1. Cancer of the lip: 5.51 men died for every one woman
  2. Cancer of the larynx: 5.37 men died for every one woman
  3. Cancer of the hypopharynx: 4.47 men died for every one woman
  4. Cancer of the esophagus: 4.08 men died for every one woman
  5. Cancer of the bladder: 3.36 men died for every one woman

All of those cancers are relatively rare. But men also die at much higher rates from the most common forms of cancers that affect both sexes. Over the course of the study period, 2.31 men died of lung cancer for every one woman who died of lung cancer, for example, and 1.42 men died of colorectal cancer of every woman who did.

In fact, of the 36 cancer types reviewed, women had higher death rates from only three: peritoneum, omentum and mesentery cancers; gall bladder cancer; and cancer of the anus, anal canal and anorectum. All three forms are extremely rare.

The new study suggests that while some small fraction of the mortality disparity can be explained by survival differences after diagnosis, almost all of the disparity arises from the fact that men are more likely than women to develop cancers in the first place.

The study’s lead author, Michael Cook, told WebMD that the causes of men’s higher cancer incidence are “not clear cut.”

He added, however, that because the ratios of male cancer deaths to female cancer deaths were changing over time, this might implicate sex differences in carcinogenic exposures that also change over time.

Chief among them are cigarette smoking — U.S. men historically have smoked much more than women, although the numbers have evened out in the last few decades — and viral infections such as human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is known to cause cervical cancer (which was not considered in the present study about sex disparities, as men do not have a cervix and therefore cannot develop cervical cancer). But HPV is also implicated in tongue and oropharyngeal cancer, as well as cancer of the anus, anal canal and anorectum (cancers that were considered in the present study).

Lifestyle, therefore, may well explain part of the difference. Of the five cancers with the biggest sex disparities in mortality — lip, larynxhypopharynx, esophagus and bladder — all five have been linked to smoking, drinking or both.

The authors of the new study also say there could also be some universal mechanisms, not related to lifestyle, that might make men more susceptible to cancers. These include the different hormone profiles of men and women, as well chromosomal abnormalities, and possible differences by sex in antioxidative capacity (the body’s ability to limit damage from free radicals) or immune function.

Cancer and Biogenic Magnetite Nanoparticles. In 1975, intracellular magnetite nanocrystals (10-100 nm) were found within single-celled organisms (prokaryotes). Specific genes and proteins are responsible for synthesis of these nanocrystals. Many multicellular organisms biochemically synthesize biogenic magnetite and other ferrite compounds like maghemite (Fe2O3) and greigite (Fe3S4). Biogenic magnetite has been found in tissues and ‘navigational organs’ of bees, hornets,snails, birds, skates, sharks and dolphins. Magnetite nanocrystals (5-100 million nanocrystals / gram of tissue) were detected (in various human tumor tissues) by SQUID magnetometry. What are the functions of biogenic magnetite nanocrystals in human organism? Human genes and immune system can’t regulate or control biomineralization of magnetite nanocrystals within human cells. This is a spontaneous unwelcome phenomenon. Various cancer cells have increased levels (concentrations) of magnetite nanocrystals in their organelles. Magnetite nanocrystals are involved in the development and progression of cancers and neurodegenerative disorders. Own magnetic fields of magnetite nanocrystals can magnetically affect cellular macromolecules and organelles (nucleolus, nucleus, mitochondria, lysosomes). Otto Warburg argued, cancer should be interpreted as a type of mitochondrial disease. Modern scientists describe cancer cells as being 'immortal' (lysosomal alterations are common in cancer cells); cancer as a genetic or chromosomal chaos. Magnetite nanocrystals are magnetized in the magnetic field of the Earth. Cell with magnetite nanocrystals can create ownexcessive magnetic field. Normal cells stop growing and reproducing once their membrane comes into contact with that of another cell. Cancer cells don't. Contact inhibition is a growth magnetic mechanism. Magnetite nanocrystals distort electrochemical reactions within cell. Cancer cell is dia-para-ferri-ferromagnetic unit of cancerous tumor. Cancers destroy human beings by biogenic magnetite nanocrystals. Human beings can destroy cancerous tumors by accurate anti-iron methods of the Old Testament.http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/opinions/35502/  ;http://healthland.time.com/2011/07/13/almost-every-type-of-cancer-kills-more-men-than-women-study-shows/  ;  Vadim Shapoval

Magnetism, Cancer and US Thermonuclear Sun-2018. Magnetism is a force of attraction orrepulsion that acts at a distance. This may be surprising to some cancer researchers, but all matter is magnetic. Cancer is a disease of cells. Any human cell is composed of diamagnetic, paramagnetic, superparamagnetic, ferrimagnetic and ferromagnetic nanoparticles. Cancer researchers may mistakenly believe, cancer is a genetic disease; cancer forms when genes within a normal cell are damaged and mutated; hundreds of genes that are Epigenetically Affected by long-term night work were reliably identified; cancer is not one disease, but literally hundreds of different diseases. In fact, intracellular superparamagnetic, ferrimagnetic and ferromagnetic nanoparticles can erratically affect DNA and chromosomes by local invisible magnetic fields. Just as the positive (+) and negative (-) electrical charges attract each other, the N and S poles of a magnet attract each other. The phenomenon of dipole is dominant among the atomic-nuclear structures. This may be surprising to some thermonuclear researchers, but the magnetic field is a dipole field,not suitable for plasma confinement. Newtonian gravitational fields have no polarity at all; they act in one direction. Thermonuclear researchers may mistakenly believe, the tokamak is one of the most-researched candidates for producing controlled thermonuclear fusion power. Magnetic fields are used (fruitlessly) for plasma confinement. Magnetic alternative to the tokamak is the stellarator. The red dwarf stars can be as small as 7.5% the mass of the Sun. This tinysize’ of gravitational field you need for a star to be able to raise the temperature in its core to the point that thermonuclear fusion can begin. If an object is less than this 7.5%, or about 80 times the mass of Jupiter (gravitational weakling, brown dwarf), it can never get going. US Thermonuclear Sun-2018 will live in American granite quarry without a roof. Nuclear artillery will initiate the work of the TS. Special artillery (located on the perimeter of a granite quarry) will give (synchronously) thermonuclear fuel for the TS. At the same time, special artillery will create ‘artificial gravitational field’, artificial compression, if the shots will be made towards each other. Cancer researchers and thermonuclear researchers should attract information on magnetism.http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/opinions/96080/  ;  http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/thermonuclear  ; http://healthland.time.com/2011/07/13/almost-every-type-of-cancer-kills-more-men-than-women-study-shows/  ;  Together We (TIME, Medical News Today, Merriam-Webster and Shapoval) Will Beat CANCER.

Unmasking the Deadly Secrets of Pancreatic Cancer. No matter how pancreatic cancer is treated, it almost always kills within two years after diagnosis. Scientists know that cancer occurs when a cell's gene mutations make the cell unable to correct DNA damage and unable to commit suicide. Scientists suppose that so-called ‘pancreatic cancer’ is not one disease, but many. Breakthroughs have been made in understanding the genetic basis of pancreatic cancer. Personalized medicine (individual genetic diagnoses and treatments) will beat pancreatic cancer in the future. According to American cancer research-1905 (Martha Tracy, Cornell University Medical College, New York), cancer cells contain so-called "masked" iron. Free iron is an essential element for cells. "Masked" iron can magnetically produce cell's gene mutations; can attractively create deficiency of intracellular free iron. Lysosomes play an important role in the progression of apoptosis. Lysosomes contain acid hydrolase enzymes. Deficiency of intracellular free iron suppresses lysosomal enzymes and mitochondrial enzymes. Otto Warburg put forward the hypothesis that a decrease in mitochondrial energy metabolism might lead to development of cancer. Pancreatic cancer occurs when "masked" iron produces multiple gene mutations, weaken lysosomes and mitochondria. Personalized anti-iron medicine will beat pancreatic cancer. Scientists must unmask the deadly secrets of pancreatic cancer.  http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/releases/252009.php  ;  http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/opinions/122203/  ;  http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/opinions/54925/  ;  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2100013/?page=1  ;  http://healthland.time.com/2011/07/13/almost-every-type-of-cancer-kills-more-men-than-women-study-shows/  ;  Medical News Today is a Leading Resource for the latest news on cancer.

Ancient Treatment for Deadly Cancers and US Thermonuclear Sun-2018. Surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, hormonal therapy, biological therapy, stem cell transplant, photodynamic therapy, acupuncture, herbal therapy, aromatherapy, music therapy, massage therapy, yoga, meditation and hypnosis can’t beat cancer. Quackery refers to the promotion of methods that claim to prevent, diagnose, or cure cancer that are known to be false, or which are unproven and most likely false. Fraud goes a step beyond quackery. In this case, treatments are advertised deceptively by people whose main intent is to make MONEY. Quackery and fraud can’t beat cancer. More than one in three people will develop some form of cancer during their lifetime; cancer causes more than one in four of all deaths. Cancer is ultimately the result of cells that uncontrollably grow and do not die. Cancers are often referred to by terms that contain a prefix related to the cell type in which the cancer originated and a suffix such as -sarcoma, -carcinoma, or just -oma. Cancer is the first-born of death (Job 18:13-15). According to the Ferromagnetic Cancer Theory (Theory from The Old Testament), ancient accurate anti-iron cancer treatment methods can beat any cancer. Fruitless cancer theories and dogmas must die. Ceramic needles can suppress any tumors and large metastases. Ceramic needles can create harmless infiltrations (harmless necroses; deposits of cells that die; benign capsules). Ceramic needles can enter anti-iron solution [sulfur (2%) + olive oil (98%); 36.6C - 39.0C] to tumors and large metastases. Anti-iron slow blood loss (even 75%) [hemoglobin control], anti-iron goat’s milk diet and anti-iron drinking water containing hydrogen sulfide can neutralize any micrometastases and isolated tumor cells.  http://www.clutchmagonline.com/2011/12/conspiracy-theory-hugo-chavez-suggests-the-u-s-is-responsible-for-the-cancerous-outbreak-amongst-south-american-leaders/  ;Chavez, Putin, US Thermonuclear Sun-2018 and Ferromagnetic Theory of Cancer.

Old Testament, Cancer Patients and Ferromagnetic Cancer Theory. What Causes Cancer? 1) American Cancer Society: cancer is a complex group of diseases with many possible causes. 2) Cancer Research UK: there is no single cause for any one type of cancer. 3) Wikipedia: it is nearly impossible to prove what caused a cancer in any individual, because most cancers have multiple possible causes. 4) News-Medical.Net: cancers are a broad group of diseases and accordingly have a wide range of causes; each cancer is different according to its biology and pathophysiology; all animals and even plants are susceptible to cancers. 5) World Health Organization and its cancer research agency (IARC): cancer arises from one single cell; the transformation from a normal cell into a tumour cell is a multistage process, typically a progression from a pre-cancerous lesion to malignant tumours; these changes are the result of the interaction between a person's genetic factors and three categories of external agents, including physical carcinogens, chemical carcinogens and biological carcinogens. 6) Patient.co.uk: cancer is a disease of the cells in the body; each cancer is thought to first start from one abnormal cell; what seems to happen is that certain vital genes which control how cells divide and multiply are damaged or altered; many cancers seem to develop for no apparent reason. 7) German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, DKFZ): practically every organ can be affected, every type of cancer has its own rules, and the underlying changes in affected cells are extremely complex. Knowledge about the structure and functioning of DNA is necessary in order to decipher the causes of cancer. 8) National Cancer Institute: the genetic material (DNA) of a cell can become damaged or changed, producing mutations that affect normal cell growth and division; cancer is often perceived as a disease that strikes for no apparent reason; while scientists don't yet know all the reasons, many of the causes of cancer have already been identified; one way of identifying the various causes of cancer is by studying populations and behaviors. 9) NetDoctor.co.uk: cancer is the development of abnormal cells that the body cannot control; cancer affects nearly one in every three people in the population. 10) PubMed Health: there are many causes of cancer; however, the cause of many cancers remains unknown. OLD TESTAMENT (the first division of the Christian Bible): 1) magnetism (one of the phenomena by which objects exert attractive and repulsive forces on other objects) causes cancer; 2) depending on the configurations of electrons in their atoms, different substances exhibit differing types of magnetic behavior (diamagnetism, paramagnetism, ferromagnetism, ferrimagnetism, and antiferromagnetism); 3) intracellular molecules FeO;Fe2O3;Fe3O4 are the main 'creators' of intracellular superparamagnetic, ferrimagnetic and ferromagnetic nanoparticles; 4) cancer works [kills religious and non-religious cancer patients (men and women)] by these nanoparticles; 5) ancient anti-iron methods of The Old Testament can quickly beat any cancer (a subtle iron disease; intracellular superpara-ferri-ferromagnetic 'infection'; the first-born of death) and religious beliefs of cancer patients-non-Christians.  http://www.encognitive.com/node/19560  ;  http://healthland.time.com/2011/07/13/almost-every-type-of-cancer-kills-more-men-than-women-study-shows/  ;  Together We (TIME, Medical News Today and Shapoval) Will Beat CANCER.

Cancer kills more men than women. Seemingly after excluding the cancers specific to a particular sex (like prostate cancer or breast cancer) cancer researchers found that men seemed to have a 60% greater risk of developing cancer and a 70% increased risk of dying from this disease. There’s no known biological reason why men should bemore likely to develop cancer and die, says Professor David Forman, information lead for the National Cancer Intelligence Network. Professor Forman also states that men may have a higher risk because men don't like going to the doctor and have unhealthy lifestyles. American Cancer Society: ‘Half of all men and one-third of all women in the US will develop cancer during their lifetimes’. Many people find that a diagnosis of cancer affects their finances and can cause money problems.Cancer research is basic research into cancer in order to identify cause and develop strategies for prevention, diagnosis, treatments and cure. How much money worldwide is spent on cancer research each year? $Billions. Cancer researchers ignore iron-cancer information-1905-2013. Iron is essential to most life forms and to normal human physiology. Iron is an integral part of many proteins and enzymes that maintain good health. On the other hand, excess amounts (deposits) of iron can result in toxicity and cancer. Iron is a well-known carcinogen and may favour tumor growth. Iron withdrawal strategies might interfere with tumor growth in cancer patients. Women are relatively iron-deficient compared to men - especially younger women, those in their late teens and early 20s - because ofmenstrual bleeding and pregnancies.Healthy adult men have about 3.6 grams total body iron. Women have a much lower amount, about 2.4 grams. Most well-nourished people in industrialized countries have 5 or more grams of iron in their bodies. Across the industrialized world, women still live 5 to 10 years longer than men.Cancer researchers must refute the Ferromagnetic Cancer Theory (Iron Conception).

Almost Every Type of Cancer Kills More Men Than Women, Study Shows. Atheist Dr House, Natural Medicine of The Old Testament and Ferromagnetic Cancer Theory. Gregory House is protagonist of the American television series House. He is played by Hugh Laurie. House is the Head of Diagnostic Medicine at the fictional Hospital in New Jersey.The character is partly inspired by Sherlock Holmes.House is an atheist. He openly and relentlessly mocks colleagues and patients who express any belief in religion, deeming such beliefs as illogical. He does not believe in an afterlife because he finds it is better to believe that life ‘isn't just a test’.House frequently says ‘Everybody lies’.James Wilson (he is played by Robert Leonard) is the head of the Department of Oncology. An antisocial maverick-atheist Dr House and oncologist Wilsonare not able to beat any cancer (cancers kill one American every minute). House’s creators and real American Medicine: 1) ignore Ferromagnetic Cancer Theory and Ferromagnetic ALS Theory; 2) can’t understand (and beat) Cancer, ALS and HIV/AIDS.The Old Testament is a Christian term for a collection of religious writings of ancient Israel. One of the major medicines in The Old Testament is olive oil. Psalm 109:18 …so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones. Sulfur was used during Biblical times as a remedy for infectious diseases. The Bible references milk 50 times.Raw Goat’s Milk is a healthy living food. In Genesis 9:4 God gives Noah ‘anti-irondietological information’: But you must not eat meat that has its lifeblood still in it. Bleeding is ‘anti-iron purification’: She must not touch anything sacred or go to the sanctuary until the days of her purification are over (Leviticus 12:4). Biblical Medicine-2013 will beat Cancer (intracellular superpara-ferri-ferromagnetic 'infection'), ALS (intraneuronal superpara-ferri-ferromagnetic ‘infection’), HIV/AIDS and religious beliefs of some patients by non-complicated anti-iron methods of The Old Testament.  http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/opinions/103745/  ;  http://healthland.time.com/2011/07/13/almost-every-type-of-cancer-kills-more-men-than-women-study-shows/  ;  TIME & Shapoval
